FWIW the term "law enforcement" needs to be stricken from the lexicon. I never "enforced" the law. I kept stupid people from doing damage to themselves or others and locked away those who would cause harm no matter what the situation.
The whole "war on drugs" thing aside- yes I did lock up dealers but not because of what they were selling. I could care less what someone wnats to shoot up, smoke, snort or ingest. I believe that addiction to known, harmful substances is natural selection at it finest (and I used to smoke- go figure :lol. The problem is the violence that is employed in the conducting of their business that justified taking action. Bullets have a tendency to go where they are pointed at- not necessarily at the desired target.

Since you mentioned that there is no union were you worked, and that the officers have a different mind set regarding the community, do you think they more or less felt the same way?
